Lancaster Museum Trip- WW1 Exhibition
“This week has been such an eventful week. We had a great time visiting the Museum in Lancaster- We learnt all about WW1.
We even spoke to a real, front-line, soldier! Both classes thoroughly enjoyed it, including myself! We found out so many different things and learnt brand new skills like, using Artefacts and Art printing.
We also found out what ‘No Man’s Land’ and ‘Hanging on a barbed wire’ mean. It was very interesting!
We all had so much fun, we had to complete a variety of questions, using the exhibition and Peter for clues- I enjoyed watching the real life footage!!”

Third Space Maths Intervention
Children in year 6 are using Third Space maths to increase their maths skills. Each child receives 1:1 tuition for 45 minutes each week via a virtual learning platform.
A year 6 child comments:
“Third space maths is about giving you the extra confidence you need to believe in yourself and know you can do maths. I’ve learnt how to divide and multiply decimal numbers and how to round large numbers. I’ve enjoyed third space learning. If you do Third Space, don’t be scared, as the tutors are really nice and they give you great tips”
Congratulations to the all the Year 6 children who are now members of the School Parliament.
